Investigation At A Sulphur Springs Motel Results In 3 Controlled Substance Arrests

An investigation at a Sulphur Springs motel resulted in three controlled substance arrests Thursday afternoon, according to arrest reports.

While at an Industrial Drive motel following up on theft and narcotics reports, Hopkins County Sheriff’s Cpl. Todd Evans and Deputy Jason Lavender contacted the occupants of one of the rooms. Their request to search it was denied, the deputies alleged in arrest reports.

Deputies then sought, obtained and executed a search warrant for the room. The officers alleged finding 0.67 grams of suspected methamphetamine.

Consequently, 20-year-old Daniel Keith Alsobrook, 18-year-old Whitney Renee Armstrong and 18-year-old Andrew Michael Magnuson, all of Sulphur Springs, were arrested at 2:53 p.m. June 11, for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance, according to arrest reports.

All three remained in Hopkins County jail Friday morning, June 12, 2020, on the felony controlled substance charge. Bond was set at $5,000 each, according to jail reports.

The arrest marks the second time in less than a month and third time in less than a year that Alsbrook has been jailed locally, according to jail records. He was also arrested May 28 on a traffic warrant. He also was jailed Sept. 24, 2019, for possession of less than 1 gram of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance in a drug-free zone, surety off bond on a theft charge and on three traffic warrants, according to arrest reports.
